A series of paintings by Ruth Chase created for BELONGING. Each piece was created in response to working with the featured participants in the BELONGING Film, as well as the dialogue that came from the Facebook Group page questions that were asked throughout the year. Please inquire about prices.
This painting expresses the significance of the Nisenan to our community. How the American dream has played a roll in their development as a tribe externally and internally. ‘nisem humwa’a’ is Nisenan for > my family is from my heart or, my heart is drawn to my family (exact translation is difficult).
